Long term readers and local history buffs will recall reader, contributor and friend of the Brownhills Blog Steve Hickman supplying material relating to his great grandfather, Joseph William Taylor, master bricklayer and craftsman of Stonnall. Well, Steve Hickman and Julian Ward-Davies of The Lost Lake of Stonnall fame have compiled what they know about Joseph and his work into a article on Julian’s blog, alongside his other great Stonnall papers.
This is just part of the fabulous work being undertaken by Julian, Steve, Gordon and the other stalwarts of the Stonnall Local History Group on Facebook. It’s an impressive thing and some real gems are coming out of this interesting and engaging project. It’s nice to see a community and group engaging with, and investigating, their shared community history. Please check it out.
